Flavourful Tale of Samosa Chaat
The love of samosas is seen everywhere in the south-Asians, especially among Indians and Pakistanis. Clocking back to a time when poor parents needed to start some business for their only child and he thought that why not invest in desi foods but in a unique way? They took some warm crunchy samosaa and crushed it gently because being harsh with samosa is out of the rules guys, and then he added some Tamarind chutney and mint chutney with a touch of sweet yogurt. And wow! What an amazing job they did, discovering such a divine combination of chutneys and samosas. And since then, samosa chaat was added to the list of monsoon desi snacks.
